Passed!

I'm pretty stoked cause this is my first "real" certification and I was pretty nervous about it the night before. I took some of the advice posted and found that flagging the simulation questions for last is possibly the best strategy for this exam. I had an "exam malfunction" which didn't allow me to answer a crucial sim question. I took the hit but it didn't matter anyway. I passed the exam with a 792.

I used Darril's book, watched a few professor messer videos and Keith Barker's CBT nuggets videos. All you really need is Darril's book and access to his premium content to reinforce the concepts :D

    Which one did you pass?
    SY0-301 or SY0-401?

    Darril doesn't have a book otu for SY0-401 and from what I understand, the 401 exam covers alot of different stuff.

    I passed the SY0-301 and from what I've seen, the SY0-401 goes more in-depth with cloud technologies and virtualization (to name a few). The CBT Nuggets Security+ series covers the new SY0-401 objectives. There's still plenty of time to take the SY0-301 but it will be retired this December.

    I agree 100%! I took a few days off to think about it and now I'm back on track for the ICND1, perhaps the ICND2 and definitely CCNA: Security.
